Wallenpaupack Area Little League

Challenger Program

The Challenger Division is one of Little Leagues most valued programs. Every year, Challengers gives the opportunity to thousands of boys and girls to enjoy Little League the way it is meant to be. Wallenpaupack Area Little League offers the only Challengers Program in the area where kids ages 7 thru 18 get together and play this wonderful game. A game where disabilities don't exist and where the players are the stars. With many businesses in the area sponsoring our this program, and a small percentage of registration fees from other divisions, we are able to extend this program to it's players for free. With other Little League division kids volunteering their time to buddy up with one of the players, it allows the kids to bond over the love of the game. This Program truly is the heart of what Little League is about.
